Extreme Sequels

Why aren't movie producers and writers becoming more creative? Why do they continue to drag out movies with sequels and even more movies following the original? Is it really necessary? Why can't we just create new story lines? Is it getting too out of control?

Other movies went too long:

The Land Before Time
Austin Powers
Friday the 13th
Nightmare on Elm Street
Cruel Intentions
The Skulls
Bring It On
Big Momma's House

only to name a few...

To emphasize my point, just look at this summer's movie relseases alone:

Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
Hostel: Part II
Oceans Thirteen
Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
Evan Almighty
Live Free or Die Hard
Mr. Bean's Holiday
Rush Hour 3
The Bourne Ultimatum
Resident Evil: Extinction
Shrek the Third
28 Weeks Later
Spiderman 3
